~ Hanging Jars & Spoon Hangers ~
A fun DIY project this summer at Hutch was to put our glass source jars to good reuse and hang them from old spoons that were formed into hooks and screwed into the interior wall of our front porch. They really stand out as you enter our shop. I've been asked on many occasion about the species of flower. They are an annual called Callie Orange or (Calibrachoa). The color really looks great against the grey green of our exterior house color.
These jars can be used inside or outside. If outside, a covered area like our porch is ideal, because rain will accumulate in the jars (no drainage) and your plants will drown and rot. I like to store my paint brushes in them inside the studio. I can see them being cool candle holders as well. The possibilities are endless.
We sell the whole set up (jar + spoon hanger) for $15. in our shop. I think it is one of those ideas that customers see and think that they will go home and do themselves, but I think you have to think about the time, effort, and tools required to make these. $15. is a sweet deal.
